Bagel Brunch & Book Talk with Mark Oppenheimer
Do not miss this entertaining and educational morning with Mark Oppenheimer, co-host of Tablet Magazine's Unorthodox , “the world’s leading Jewish podcast,” a smart, fresh, fun, weekly take on Jewish news and culture. Mark will be talking about his newest book, The Newish Jewish Encyclopedia: From Abraham to Zabar’s and Everything in Between. Highly entertaining and irreverent, this unputdownable encyclopedia of all things Jewish and Jew-ish covers culture, religion, history, habits, language, and more. Readers will refresh their knowledge of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, the artistry of Barbra Streisand, the significance of the Oslo Accords, the meaning of words like balaboosta, balagan, and bashert. Understand all the major and minor holidays. Learn how the Jews invented Hollywood. Even discover the secret of happiness (see “Latkes”). Includes hundreds of photos, charts, infographics, and illustrations. You’ll want one copy to keep and several more to give as gifts. Of course, bagels with a schmear and more will be served! (“Schmear, the noun, is the stuff you schmear on a bagel.”)

All are welcome, and books will be for sale. If you’d like to be an event sponsor, $36 will get you a signed copy of Mark’s book (a $36 value!).
